Gulf of Mexico / Gulf Coast

Vertical Production by Geologic Epoch


The graphic above presents vertical producing wellbores in the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast Basin.

Most production in the region is sourced from Cenozoic-aged reservoirs (primarily Miocene and Oligocene Epochs), though Mesozoic-aged reservoirs have also produced significant hydrocarbon volumes. Notable onshore reservoirs in Texas include the Frio, Vicksburg, and Wilcox.

VSO has evaluated development and exploratory projects located in the onshore Gulf Coast, inland waters, shallow water Gulf of Mexico, and deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

Methodology Overview

VSO sourced landing bench and production data from IHS to prepare these maps.
